Right - attention all you Hornet lovers!!! According to an article in this month's 'Motorcycle Sport and Leisure' and an interview with Fabrice What's-His-Name, the head of Honda France, Honda are intending to relaunch the Hornet in 2019!!! Details are not yet available, but it seems the likelyhood is that it will feature an uptuned version of the 650 engine currently in the CB650F like mine, in a bike that takes its' design cues from the new CB1000R. Already, last year, they redesigned the CB650F to, in their words, make it feel and ride more like the Hornet (in the process they managed to make it actually a better bike than their CBR650F) So.....guess who's about to start pestering her contacts at Honda UK for more info.....

OK, so it seems that there will be two different 650 models. One relatively standard one, to replace the current CB650F, and one that will bear the Hornet name. After lots of prodding and poking, that's all I can find out at the moment, as nobody has any further information to give as yet. 'A palace official said'..............sorry, someone said watch out for possible news close to the Milan show in November
